FABRIC ASSESSMENT CRITERIA

The optimality of any fabric cannot be assessed only by looking at its impermeability and watertightness, it is indeed essential to consider also its perspiration: every square centimeter of a fabric has to contribute to the natural air exchange cycle, in order to deliver such a real level of comfort that only the high perspiration of the fabric and the fast transmission of water vapor are able to guarantee.

THE TRUTH ABOUT BREATHEABILITY

traspirabilitaApproach the tent, take a flap of tissue and press it firmly against your mouth with one hand and breathe out hard.

If the palm of your hand feels the air passing through this means that the fabric is breathable.

Hot summer nights, no drafts of air or partly open windows to combat the humidity.

With a breathable fabric you never feel suffocated and can always breathe deeply in all conditions.

These are just some of the fundamental principles applied for many years by Autohome over its whole range of roof tents.
No electric fans, contraptions or commercial gadgets (of little or no use) to vacate moisture from the tent. With DRALON ® MAGGIOLINA fabrics are 100% breathable. And in the range of tents with AIRTEX® fabric, the transmission speed of water vapour is unrivalled. So, an overnight stay is always fresh and healthy even when it is raining or the doors and windows are closed.

THE ADVANTAGES OF DRALON

materiali icona 1

ARTISAN QUALITY IN MASSPRODUCTION

As for most of the versions of Autohome roof tents, the shells are made of fiberglass. Fiberglass is a particular fabric fiber interweaved and soaked in resinous liquid substances or polyester. This material is also known as GRP, glass reinforced plastic (GFK in German).
The above mentioned really expensive liquid resins, once adequately mixed with catalyzing or accelerating additives, are manually spread with hairy roller brushes on a glassy fabric previously lay on open stamps. In this way, while solidifying, the liquid resin incorporates the glassy fibers and creates the fiberglass. It is a laborious process by hand but it is surely worthy the quality of the result.
Fiberglass is very widespread within the building industry and used especially for roofs and other industrial and urban coverings. It does not get warm under the sun and keeps any closed environment insulated from heat and cold, an indispensable feature for any roof tent. Thanks to fiberglass, Autohome’s shells guarantee excellent quality not only in regard to their endurance and sound proof insulation, but also in terms of lightness and easiness to repair (avoiding this way the high costs of substitution of entire shells) This is one of the secrets that give Autohome roof tents superior quality and reliability. Wherever. Whenever. The quality of fiberglass is so great that this material is also used in the manufacturing of boats and cars, especially for bodyworks and hulls that need rigidity and stability throughout time… the best campers, for example, are the ones with single body made with fiberglass and therefore easily repairable (bodies made with ABS are indeed not very diffused anymore because of their difficult reparation processes). Thanks to its excellent qualities of lightness, robustness and resistance to decompression, fiberglass is also used for windmill blades and within the aeronautical and aerospace industry.
Autohome’s shells are designed and manufactured with the best existent material today.
No presumption of travelling to the moon (for the time being…).

TECHNICAL DETAILS

BEDROOMS MADE TO LAST

All particulars, from the design concept, materials and components, to the safety features and insulation, have been methodically chosen and thoroughly tested in order to obtain an all-weather proof product that can be depended upon at all times. Just like the structure of a boat, we have used fibreglass to prevent it from aging, discolouring or losing its shape. Its remarkable capacity to withstand knocks and bumps can ensure durability but should the worst happen Maggiolina is easily repaired.

ROOF INSULATION

Roof insulation with air gap is an exclusive Autohome feature.
The air cushion obtained by the internal alveolar panel and the anti-condensation foam allow a better thermal and acoustic insulation and a healthier and more silent place to rest in case of rain.

The “sandwich” construction base has 25mm insulation thickness, while the two “C” shaped built in guides allow easy installation of roof tent with any kind of roof cross bars (normally without any additional fixings) offering a steady and safe structure in order to withstand any off-road stresses.

Dim. 1,12 x 0,96 mm
[18×20/square inch]

The mosquito net used is in fibreglass, soft and very resistant.
It has a fine weft: 18×20 threads per square inch.
The hole size is very small: peaceful nights everywhere, whether in swampy areas, by river banks or in the presence of very small insects.

V= with the tent closed, this indicates the capacity (volume) of the upper shell, in litres.
The upper shell contains 2 or 3 pillows, according to the model, and other night-time accessories or personal effects.
For example, a rucksack, blankets, a beauty-case, or the ladder, the changing room, winter hood or other travel accessories can be fitted inside the tent, so they don’t take up room in the boot or inside the vehicle.

B.

When choosing a roof tent, the shell height is important because it shows how much room there is inside and how easy it is to move about, hence the comfort.
Even just a few centimetres more or less make a big difference: everything has been calculated to ensure that a person of average height (170-190 cm) can sit comfortably without the head coming close to the ceiling.
The overall length of 210 cm provides optimum comfort and room for rucksacks or large blankets.

C.

The width (SMALL /MEDIUM) is according to the number of occupants

D.

The width of the door L= 75 cm is designed for easy access even if you are not as slim and nimble as you used to be (most doors at home are about 75 cm wide).

E.

The doors have arch-shaped zips for partial opening, providing privacy and improved air circulation inside the tent. When required, the areas above the doors become anti-condensation air sockets.

F.

The windows are big enough to give an excellent view and small enough not to compromise privacy.

G.

Standard bases include 2 strong C-shaped steel bars to hook the tent onto the vehicle roof rails, using the clamps supplied.

UNIVERSAL SYSTEM

The exclusive Autohome security system allows all tents to be used on any vehicle: small cars, off-road vehicles, station-wagons, MPV’s (or people carriers), camper vans, and pick-up trucks... A universal, quick attachment system, allows you to position the tent safely in any position, with no risk of damage or modifications to the body of the vehicle. Various fixing kits are available to suit.

1st Advantage:

All tents are fully independent for easy installation on the car roof.

2nd Advantage:

The C-shaped steel rails integrated into the bases of all Autohome models strengthen the structure and make it possible to fix the tent to the roof bars by means of special clamps.

3rd Advantage:

Just two people (standing beside the car) can easily lift the tent and position it on the roof bars without risk to the bodywork.

4th Advantage:

The standard clamps slide along the C-shaped rails to fix the tent in the desired position. This position varies depending on the type of car, to be used as a carryall or for best appearance.

The tent bases must not be drilled for fixing onto the roof bars.

No holes are to be drilled in the roof bars to secure the tent. This operation is prohibited by current safety regulations. It is not permitted to make changes to the roof rack.

4 clamps are provided as standard for simple, easy mounting according to the rules.

Universal System Autohome is a mounting system according to the standards, certified by T.V - ID: 0000024461. Beware of imitations.

DRIVE CALM AND SLEEP PEACEFULLY

Safety is priceless for us at Autohome and for this reason our research and development centre has always worked on two fronts: first to guarantee "no problem journeys" and second to ensure "peaceful nights".

NO PROBLEM JOURNEYS

The roof tent is a load subject to dynamic stress when driving on the road and like any other load outside the vehicle must be firmly anchored and give a guarantee of safety, in order not to become a hazard. Autohome roof tents are made
of the best materials to be solid and robust, able to withstand the stresses of the asphalt and the aerodynamic drag of the wind. They passed the stringent certification tests of the product and materials to travel years and years without problems.

AUTOHOME QUALITY TENTS CERTIFIED ALSO BY TÜV

 

PEACEFUL NIGHTS

The same attention we paid to dynamic security was also given to the quality of sleep. First choice materials, accurate finishes, attention to details mean that in the Autohome tent you sleep in a real bed, insulated from the heat and cold and soundproofed from rain noise.

WARNING

There are roof tents on the market that do not have any real product certification. Beware of certifications such as ISO 9001 that some sellers advertise, because they concern the company organization and are not at all a guarantee of quality and security of the tent you are going to buy.
On the contrary, Autohome roof tents have passed stringent quality tests of the materials used, carried out in the laboratories of qualified Bodies, including the German TÜV.
